The Empire of Slartnus is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Artaxerses de Farsae with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 8.65 billion Slartnorum have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slartnusia. The average income tax rate is 24.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Slartni economy, worth a remarkable 1,515 trillion Voknaruses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 175,172 Voknaruses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, carrots are orange, apples are red and food waste is increasing, and government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slartnus's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Slartnusian Orthodoxy.

Slartnus is ranked 113,304th in the world and 3rd in Sagittarius Arm for Nudest, with 79 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
